Sustainability stories

Thanks for taking the time to familiarize yourself with our approach to business here at New Belgium. On this page, you'll find some stories which illustrate who we are, and why we do what we do. Our commitment towards sustainability began on day one of New Belgium’s history when environmental stewardship made it into the first draft of the company’s Core Values and Beliefs, and carries through to today. Happy reading!

2008 Sustainability NonReport

May 07, 2009

Since our 2007--first ever--sustainability report was published late last year, we have been torn between issuing another one just months later or going silent for over 18 months.  Neither good options!  So, we're going to share the 2008 content through the blog.

First up, on the social sustainability front:  Have you seen how we spent $470,000 in philanthropy funds last year?  And, here are the local grant guidelines for 2009.  Our areas of focus are:  water stewardship, sensible transportation & bike advocacy, sustainable agriculture, and youth environmental education.

Tomorrow, we'll dive into waste (and recycling and composting, of course).  Please let me know what you'd like to read about or if you have any questions.
